ECHO CHAMBER: The Wonder Woman Trick

Diane Nelson at DC Entertainment has said Wonder Woman is “tricky” when it comes to making a live-action adaptation. Since the days of Lynda Carter in her Donfeld outfit, fans have been wondering, “When will we see a Wonder Woman movie?”

It hasn’t helped that Batman’s had seven films, Superman six, and Green Lantern’s even had a go on the big screen, along with the Watchmen, but no Amazon yet. Only in animated media has Princess Diana been able to shine a bit, proving her worth among a team of heroes in Justice League and New Frontier, and flying solo in Wonder Woman with Keri Russell providing the voice.

The failure of David E. Kelley’s pilot for NBC just reinforced the fact that a lot of people in Hollywood just don’t get it. What is it about Wonder Woman that makes it a challenge to put her in the movies? Will Zach Snyder be able to finally deliver a version worthy of the big screen?
